The Post Holiday Blues: Feathered Frenzy

Coming out of Christmas and the holiday season can be hard for us all. Once the decorations comes down, everything seems bleak once January comes along. The post-holiday blues affects our avian companions too.

In her inaugural 2022 Feathered Frenzy column, Sherri offers us parronts ways to help our fids – and us transition to a new year. Such measures will help you grounded while also giving you and your birdies something to look forward to every day!

Creative Christmas Ideas: Feathered Frenzy

Happy December 1st Everybirdie!

For the December ’21 edition of Feathered Frenzy, Sherri offers some excellent – and timely, re-gifting ideas for our birdies this Christmas.

Despite the current global supply chain issues, we parronts can come up with fabulous gift ideas for our fids regardless! Click here to read Sherri’s innovative tips for keeping the season festive without breaking the bank or leaving us feeling anxious.

Gift Ideas for Parrots: Feathered Frenzy

The Christmas season is upon us, and for parronts, wondering what presents to get for our feathered kids – fids, is a seasonal challenge.

What do you get the fids who seemingly have everything you ask?

Sherri’s December 2020 Feathered Frenzy column provides all parronts out there with great tips and suggestions for birdie gift giving this Christmas.

Beyond toys, playgyms and treats, the greatest gift we can give our feathered companions, and the most valuable, is our time and attention this holiday season!

Zoom Zoom Alexa: Beneath the Cage Grate

IMG_20191230_140702Morty’s Christmas was a success – mostly.  He was of course showered with toys from Santa Claws, and his two sidekicks also received cool presents from the jolly fellow.

However, Morty is dismayed with one of his roommate’s Christmas haul – and her subsequent experimentation with her new ‘toy’.

Read Morty’s January edition of Beneath the Cage Grate and judge for yourself whether Morty’s Christmas wishes for Alexa and Roomba came true!

Back to Normal… almost

Bubbles 2019It’s officially the 2020’s and Sherri and the birdies are trying to tie a neat little bow on the Christmas just past and return to some degree of normalcy to begin the new decade.

But alas, normalcy is hard to achieve, especially after a couple of weeks of rushing around, decorating, wrapping and then opening presents, and the prep and clean ups from big dinners and visitors.

How do you and your flock return to your ‘normal’ after the holiday season?  Catch up with Zack and Bubbles here to find out how they’re trying to resume their routines after a festive but hectic Christmas.

Dear Santa…: Beneath the Cage Grate

Dear Santa Claws… Claus

MortyPoor Santa, he has his hands full this year with the Christmas wishes from Alexa, Morty and Roomba as there appears to be some ‘issues’ ruffling a few wires and feathers between them!

The December edition of Beneath the Cage Grate finds Alexa, Morty and Roomba  once again at odds, with their respective Letters to Santa reflecting quite the tryst –  and the lengths each will go to spoil each other’s Christmas celebrations.

It’s also fair to say that Morty’s mom may want to read what her housemates have requested from Santa, before Christmas day arrives, to perhaps avoid the beginnings of a new, chaotic tradition!

Unconventional Traditions

Whether it be decorations, lights, food, television shows or music, we all have Christmas traditions that are near and dear to us.  Some of these traditions change, fade with time, or get updated as years go by.  Our feathered companions are an important part of Christmas festivities and time-honored traditions and are often keen to participate in traditions.

Sherri’s December Feathered Frenzy article will surely make every reader reminisce about Christmas’ past, and how their birdies respond to those treasured traditions.

A little early, but please join Sherri and family in wishing Zack a very Happy 20th birthday on December 31st!
